New Colours in Cosmetics



Interesting article this week, which concerns the use of Biomimetics and what are termed "nanostructure colours" and how these may be able to replace traditional pigment colours in cosmetics.

These structural colours are more vibrant and longer lasting than traditional pigments. The problem has been to find a way to create structural colours so that the actual colour does not change with the angle at which the colour is viewed.

This could indicate that we may be able to look forward to a whole new generation of colour in makeup and cosmetic products.
